Felt making Workshop

Today we had an Expanding your Knowledge workshop here at Cynthia's Ark. Today workshop featured felt making. The plan with these workshops is to try something new, may be a little different. Challenge ourselves, you just don't know what value we may learn.

We had a go at two felt making techniques today. In the morning session we made a funky scarf which also gave us a taste of making flat felt that can be used in all sorts applications across a number of crafts.

Following our lunch break we had a go at making pin cushions which use a slight different technique from the flat felted scarves.
You end up with two pin cushions from a ball of wool rovings. It is surprise when you cut the ball in half.

It was fun day and hopefully inspiring to the ladies who joined me today.
 Next month Expanding your Knowledge workshop is learning how to make piping and inserting zip workshop while making a pair of cushions.
Until Next Time
Keep Stitching
